With three weeks remaining until the July 20th primary election, the MacGinnitie for Secretary of State campaign is pleased to announce the endorsement of the Gwinnett Forum, which today called MacGinnitie a “fresh presence” and “forceful and energetic.”
MacGinnitie is “concerned about streamlining the licensing of professionals in Georgia, but also understands the need to improve balloting for those in the military,” said Forum editor Elliot Brack.
The Gwinnett Forum is an online community commentary which describes itself as “exploring pragmatic and sensible social, political and economic approaches to improve life in Gwinnett County, Georgia. It strives to stimulate an idea exchange, promote a public debate, and move toward achieving an improved and enlarged quality of life in Gwinnett.”
"I greatly appreciate the endorsement of the Gwinnett Forum," said MacGinnitie. “I hope to bring a new perspective and my private sector experience to the Georgia Secretary of State’s office. I am most grateful for the support of the publication for the more than 750,000 people living in Gwinnett County.”
Doug MacGinnitie attended elementary and high school in DeKalb County, Georgia. He graduated from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire and Emory Law School. Following work as an associate at Alston & Bird, Chief Counsel for Georgia Pacific and General Counsel for Hobbs Group, he co-founded and served as Chief Operating Officer for Beecher Carlson, a commercial insurance brokerage firm based in Atlanta. He and his wife Missy live in Sandy Springs with their three children.
